This is a great place for the beginner rider. Lessons on Western horseback riding from Fiona, who is absolutely wonderful to work with. Highly recommend this place for riding lessons, trail rides and all things horses :)

A bustling place. Seems a bit disorganized, but people are friendly and horses are well behaved. The ride was amazing on nice trails.
